my hubby at his best!

My husband recently decided to pick up his pencil again, and any one that knows him
 knows he is a amazing artist. JD Hillberry recently done a weekend class in Dallas 
and my hubby was able to attend. 
He got to brush up on his skill
 but learn some new ones all at the same time. 
This was his first drawing since the class. 
This picture was ask by a long time friend to be drawn
 so he could get it tattooed in memory of his dad who past away. 
He flew the jet in the Air Force and then became a minister
the sketch
 back ground
 working his way down

monochromatic challenge

The latest challenge card I've done. I must say this has been really good for me the last 7days. It has kept me creating something everyday- Which for me I think is a good thing. The more you create the  more ideas that come. (lol) This card was suppose to be monochromatic but think I kinda missed it with the colors skeam I used but still like how it turned out. =)

In-colors in The Book Store =)

Okay so some of you know my husband and I have started a new chapter in our life, and bought a local book store that I worked at for the past 5yrs. Well let me just start by saying there was MUCH work to be done to the place. But what better way to be inspired than by  Stampin' Up - and I must say Lowes was just awesome on helping me match up my colors that I needed.

 Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Calypso Coral

  .... so let's scroll down and take a walk thru the store w/ me.

 Picture above is Before and below is After
This picture below is the opposite side of the one you see above, 
(now where my desk is) i will post more later on what it looks like for you. 
 And this is where I get to display all my fabulous SU creations. =0)
Picture above is Before and below After
This picture below is the back end to this same side,
we actually took out a couple of walls here to open it up to one big room.
On to the other side of the store

Picture above is the Before and the one below is the After
 ... and this is still what this side of the store looks like b/c we
 had to take a break from all this great over-hall to the store.
 but it's coming a long and looking awesome.
Still have to replace the shelving on this side,then work on my kids corner.
Will keep you posted as the updates happen.
